Plymouth University Family Law Clinic
Students at the clinic interview and advise clients, conduct necessary legal and investigative research, and draft related legal documents and filings. In some cases, students can negotiate resolutions with opposing parties or defend a client`s interests before the Alleghany County Family Division`s Pro Petitions Court. The fieldwork is supported by rigorous supervision sessions, which are conducted regularly and frequently throughout the semester. Students meet one-on-one with clinical faculty on a weekly basis, where they engage in case planning, strategy development, and reflection.

At the Family Law Clinic, law students acquire the knowledge, skills and values necessary for a professionally effective and satisfying client representation practice. Third-year students provide brief advice and limited legal representation to clients facing family law issues in Allegheny County. During their practice, students are mentored by clinical faculty and certified by the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania to provide legal services to litigants. LGBTQ+ Clinic (Network of Volunteer Lawyers) Come or make an appointment. Free clinics via Zoom. Provide 15-20 minutes of legal advice on name and gender etiquette changes, as well as general legal advice and recommendations. Clinical seminars prepare students to succeed in their client representation and learn collective lessons from their fieldwork.
The intensity and frequency of seminars decreases during the year. Before the fall semester begins, the clinic meets for an intensive orientation event to lay the groundwork for field research. During the semester, students meet once a week for seminars on various topics. These topics include legal skills, substantive law and the development of professional identity. During the semester, seminars become rounds in which students deal with group problem solving and skill practice. In the spring semester, seminars cover advanced topics in family law and move on to lessons learned from field research. The quality and scope of our work benefit from access to a wide pool of skills and expertise. The local community contributes enormously to the expansion of this pool, but we also benefit from the diversity of knowledge and perspectives in the different departments of our university.
